Royal Palm Society

Naples Botanical Garden is where plants and people thrive together.

The support of our Royal Palm Society Members is vital to our continued leadership to build a more resilient community and region. With botanical gardens on the front lines of protecting plants from natural and human-made threats, the Garden is working with local governments and civic groups to create a more sustainable environment while adding beauty and a sense of place. Through your generosity, you help ensure the Garden and our community will thrive for generations to come.
